. the debt ceiling is just there and, says you can not pay the bills that you voted to incur a year ago and two years ago and three years ago. and that is just wrong. now it used to be harmless in that the debt ceiling would be raised with a little demagoguing here and there but no one ever seriously suggested not raising it. it was raised seven tiles during the second bush administration with no great debate. but now it is being used as blackmail and could wreck the entire american economy if we don't --. david: hold on a second, congressman. 2002, june 2002 two, in november, 2004 and november 2006, guess who voted against raising the debt ceiling. jerry nadler, member of congress. what has changed. why were you against, in favor of keeping debt ceiling restraint then and not so now. >> it because it was meaningless gesture frankly. when you had a republican president and republican congress minority demagogued and said we'll vote against it knowing perfectly well it would pass. no one ever seriously tried to have it not pass. and when ever, we were in the majority, we, democrats we passed it, even in the bush administ

election, scared us with the fiscal cliff and now scaring us with the debt ceiling. what are you going to scare us with about washington after that's over and you faked everyone out and got them to sell? i rolled my eyes, i defended myself, saying all three of threes issues are and are worthy of worry and i told people to stay the course, like he could care. he said, again, what washington horror story are you going to gin up, cramer? and i said impact on spending of higher taxes, coming affordable care act, instead i said wisely no, that's it. maybe it would be good if you focused on the stock market again. ouch! but it did get me thinking. we have seen bank stocks go higher, today, last week, putting washington behind them. and it didn't look like the bank killing died, much impact on goldman sachs or yp morgan. high-end retails rally, and it incurred, and we keep acting as it has, and no increacessation e buying according to lennar, and the sandy bailout will kick in by the second quarter, home depot will fly. we're through two of the washington stumbling blocks, the election and fiscal cliff. one more leg to go. debt ceiling. the last obstacle may be the least dangerous, judging by what happened last year with the overly dreaded debt do

compromise. i'm willing to give them four to six months extra time. >> settling a debt ceiling issue is in the interest of the president and of our country. you have today fitch came out and threatened to decrease the credit rating and they are doing it in a way that areckless because you have outside observers looking at us and i want to highlight a point you made earlier which is the fact that all spending bills are in the constitution. we are looking at a credit card bill that this country has to pay that was in cured by congress by authorizing this spending. >> but peter, you are going to get a budget out of that house. they are late, but i believe they will. it is the senate that hasn't delivered a budge it in years. this is not just about the here and now. this is forward spending. forward spending needs a road map and the taxpayers have a right to know. >> yeah, i think it is pretty rich to call republican ares reckless spepder e spenders her. when president obama was asked to vote on a hike in 2006, the fact that we are raising the debt limit is a result of reckless fiscal po

they lose the debt ceiling, too, will they force the issue or run scared because public opinion is not on their side? >> i think there are really three teams in washington. people on the left that include the president. people on the right, people who voted against boehner's plan b and people who want a deal done. i think in the end, people who want a deal done will prevail. maybe at the last hour or three hours after the last hour, we don't know. it was quite obvious the president was trying to blow up the deal on december 31st, while biden and mcconnell were out there negotiating, the president had a pep rally in the east room in which he directly attacked both the congress and the republicans, people trying to do the deal. any who's done any negotiations know what you should have done is praise the process, not attack the people in the middle of the process. i don't think the president liked that deal, i don't think he wanted a deal. i think he'd rather have the issue and i think in this case, he'd also rather have the issue. it will be very very hard to get a serious deal done when one of the main negotiators really doesn't want any de

has linked several increase in the debt ceiling to deficit reduction deals. it serves as reminder how much the government has borrowed. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell writes, over the past three decades in fact u.s. presidents and lawmakers from both parties routinely used the debt limit debate to reform government spending. washington democrats under pressure from their favored interest groups continue to adhere to an outdated ideology that says every penny of revenue washington ever got its hands on is sacrosanct. house republicans are enroute to williamsburg, virginia for their retreat. they will consider the options for the upcoming debt ceiling fight. short term increase with modest spending cuts to a 4-year increase including overhaul of the tax code and entitlement programs. back to you. tracy: sound ambitious. rich edson, glad you could stick around and talk to us. we're 29 days away from the debt ceiling d-day. ashley: we are. tracy: will be valentine's day actually. ashley: not pretty though. as you just said, tracy, less than a month away from hitting the debt ceiling. while several ideas have been floated to address it our next guest says it is time to skip the gimmicks t

the debt ceiling, which is that not everybody understand what the debt ceiling is about. the debt ceiling, raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay existing bills. it doesn't create new deficits. it doesn't create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family, which is trying to improve its credit rating sank i know how we can save money, we won't pay off credit card bills. not the most effective way to improve your credit rating. it was the very slow solution to the debt ceiling in august 2011 i got the u.s. downgraded last time. so it's very, very important that all these issues are important but it's very, very important that congress take necessary action to raise the debt ceiling to avoid a situation where our government doesn't pay its bills. >> a number of people have expressed concern about how much of the challenges actually were addressed in the deal. as you mention it certainly went part way but it leaves another the issues still on the table, and additional negotiations and are loo
